Transdel Pharmaceuticals Reports Excellent Results of Initial Testing on Anti-Cellulite Product Conducted by JH Direct



LA JOLLA, Calif., Sept. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Transdel Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC:TDLP) (BULLETIN BOARD: TDLP) ("Transdel") reported today that JH Direct has completed their initial product testing of Transdel's anti-cellulite formulation in 24 subjects, which consisted of observing the before and after results of applying the product over a 16 week period. The excellent results observed during this test have led JH Direct to initiate plans for a final test in approximately 25 subjects to be conducted by a third-party skin research center that will conduct a similar test to the initial test as well as obtain additional measurements over a 12 week period. JH Direct is planning a commercial launch of the product for the fourth quarter of 2010 or in early 2011 subject to successful completion of this final test.

Under the terms of its exclusive worldwide licensing agreement, JH Direct will pay Transdel initial royalty advances and a continuing licensing royalty on the worldwide sales of the anti-cellulite product. The product will be initially launched through a direct response television campaign created and managed by JH Direct, followed by a planned expansion into traditional channels of distribution, such as retail and wholesale channels.

"We are pleased with JH Direct's product development progress and commercialization plans for our anti-cellulite product; given their significant experience and past success with direct response television campaigns we are confident they will maximize the potential of our product," stated John Lomoro, Acting Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. "The eventual launch of this product will be a significant milestone for Transdel."

"We are very pleased with the results that the participants experienced from our initial testing and are excited to be moving into the final testing phase for the anti-cellulite product," stated Johann Verheem, JH Direct's Chief Executive Officer. "We believe there is a large market opportunity for an anti-cellulite product that works as well as this product has proven in our initial testing and we are looking forward to introducing this product to the market."
